We are often asked about Zohar translations. One of the most impressive yet least known is
the e-book by R. Peretz Auerbach [available here] of the Old City of Jerusalem;
Part 2 of its opening section constitutes this week's 2nd article.
In fact, all 7 articles are either straight Kabbalah or Kabbalah inspired.
Hopefully you will find them relatively accessible.
The 6th article is for the fifth chapter of Pirkei Avot, which will study this Shabbat afternoon.
The story (#7) is is quite astonishing. It is from KOL's managing editor's first book, "Saturday Night, Full Moon" — available here.
